$6.00 per person. Nice shop. Fun randomness.

Dinosaur Land

Even though it's outside, you enter and exit through the gift shop, so there are no dogs allowed. You can see five or six dinosaurs through the chain link fence if you don't have time to take in all its glory.

Dinosaur Land

This place was amazing. RA has it right about the old ones being the best ones. Some of them look like they came straight out of the stop-motion movies. I'm a high school teacher, and my first thought was, "Someone needs to have their prom here."

Folks in the gift shop were extremely kind. Don't miss out on the Dinosaur Land learning book (marked down to .25 from .75). It has pictures of the dinos in the park as it once looked. The sloth is the best, hands down.

Dinosaur epic battle.

Dinosaur Land

Fun for at least 30 minutes. The creepy dinosaurs are worth a laugh. Young kids would love a trip here and older folks would enjoy a good laugh. Worth the admission for a nice outdoor adventure.

Dinosaur Land

We stopped by before Dinosaur Land opened and it was worth it just to see the sign and the statues outside. Great photo op and place to stretch your legs. It would definitely be worth your time to see the whole park. Thanks so much for keeping this great piece of Americana open!
